My business partners were actually down at Quail Lodge the same day I bought my RR ... they wouldn't stop raving about it (the lesson) - and gave me a 2 hour lesson for xmas!

We're headed down this Sat (Jan 2) - will update how it goes ... they've got a 2010 that we'll be driving. I don't even have to get my car dirty! :clap:

Have fun, I haven't had the pleasure but have heard great things about both the resort and the driving school! Hope you get the off-roading bug, maybe we will meet on a trail soon. :thumb:

my wife and i did the one day course for our anniversary a few years back. the RRS they had was bone stock but had the rear locker. even though, i woulda much preferred my RRS on nittos out there. we were supposed to get some rain today which woulda made it interesting. the course is great with lots of variations and plenty to learn from.

oh and if you want to head out with us some time, check out NCLRclub.org.

Took the experience school driving lessons two years ago on a brand new 2008 Range rover. Loved it. Of course I got a large discount after repairing a few things on the other vehicles that were giving them problems in the field.

its amazing how useful the actually driving is and how it can be applied to regular driving on almost any vehicle in any condition. Especially snowy conditions. Even the act of pumping the brake like using hDC can be helpful.

makes you a better driver.

i enjoyed a lot while getting training for my range rover its helps us a lot because its not jut about to buy such a great beauty it is about to handle a great power as we all know that greater power has its greater responsibilities and we only be responsible when we are as confident to control it and confident we only get by training as we are not just driving a car we are representing a history of a range rovers
so i am requesting you all the guys out there that be the part of that training session it helps a lot against solving a range rovers software problems and make you understand about each and everything about your RANGE ROVERS
THANKS

I couldn'ta said it better. :D

The LR school is good, but not nearly as exciting off road-wise as going 4 wheeling in a clapped out, lifted '82 Jeep Wrangler with the local farm boys. Just sayin'.

How about a '94 lifted Wrangler on 32s? (see sig)

Seriously - very cool day. Great instructors and I was quite amazed at the technology ... feels a bit like cheating. Just like the power/handling on the road can get you in trouble fast, the technology will do the same off road. Kind of reminds me of the progression in mountain bikes - I raced 'em prior to front bicycle shocks being invented ... now the dualies are just point and shoot.

I was super impressed with the articulation and just how well these street tires performed on the trails - and how capable the vehicle is. I get the whole "Stay clean while getting dirty" bit now!

Very cool - highly reccomend the day to anyone with the desire.
